    Default COVID-19 Vaccine Messaging, Part 1

    July, 2020

    Brief Summary: This study tests different messages about vaccinating against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available. Participants are randomized to 1 of 12 arms, with one control arm and one baseline arm. We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available between the 10 intervention arms to the 2 control arms.

    You can read about the 'persuasive messages' tested partway down the page. I didn't find the results of the trial, but I think the fact they're testing messages like this, at least some of which are downright dishonest and misleading, is important to know. Basically, it's about manipulating people. And I can't help but wonder if somehow the study is paving the way for decisions on whether or not to make vaccination mandatory.

    If they make vaccinations mandatory they won't need persuasive messages. Just do it or get punished!

    I don't know why the title says 'default.'

    This is enlightning. I wonder whether the same persuasive messaging tests are employed for all new vaccines prior to deployment.
